The All-Black, Patterned Mani

The following is a guest post from our friends at The Beauty Department.

We love any beauty look that bridges two totally different styles, so naturally we're pretty obsessed with this all black, patterned mani. While its color might be goth and brooding, its textures are cheery and sweet; ultimately we can't really figure out how to label it, and that's a good thing. (Plus, to make it yourself, all you need is a good dotting tool and the right kinds of matte and shiny black nail polish. It's easy yet so striking.)
